I've seen ASIWYFA once before and they were fantastic but this was truly one of the best gigs I've ever seen. The venue is just great, relaxed atmosphere, up-close and personal and seeing such a powerful band in a relatively small space was mind-blowing. Just wonderful!

And So I Watch You From Afar, The Big Difference (formerly The Cookie), Leicester - 14th November 2018
ASIWYFA always manage to bring a crowd together to journey their live musical terrain. It's like the guitarist/singer said, 'these shows never feel like playing to an audience, it feels more like hanging out and playing for our mates'. It felt just like that, no one track was as important as the next and watching them never felt like I was hanging on for a particular song. Every song was great. Being able to pull an array of emotions out of people without needing any lyrics (save for the loved chorus of harmonic one note/word vocals on a few songs) is a gift and it was displayed at the Thekla. Sound was very good - for all acts -and the light show completed their performance with perfect enhancement for the size that was available. A mention too for the ASIWYFA merch guy who solved a problem for me with no hassles, questions and much generosity. Venues are all unique and all have perfections and flaws, the Thekla is an amazing place which is down to its sheer aesthetics. A boat that is a sound hall for gigs?! Unfortunately the under structures of a boat can't be altered much so there are a few visibility issues from certain points, just a minor gripe. Staff were awesome, with as much character as the venue. So, for £15, the intimacy and experience was far better than some bigger and more expensive shows that I have been to. If you get the chance to either see And so I watch you from afar OR go to the Thekla to see a band then definitely do so.
